The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is making available two reports that examine the scientific support for a proposed Risk-Based Inspection System for processing and slaughter establishments.

One report discusses the proposed system for all processing and slaughter establishments and the other report details the system specifically for young chicken slaughter establishments. FSIS has revised these reports based upon comments from NACMPI, stakeholders, and peer reviewers.

The revised technical report for all processing and slaughter establishments is now available. The agency plans to make the revised poultry slaughter report available on April 25, 2008. Response to comment documents have been developed to accompany each report. FSIS will continue to refine the Public Health Risk-Based Inspection System by working with stakeholders to carry out a methods evaluation.

In addition, FSIS has released the Audit Report on Issues Impacting the Development of Risk Based Inspection at Meat and Poultry Establishments. This report presents the results of the audit conducted by the Office of the Inspector General, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
